  • Can you help?

    I'm a 20 year old guy who is gay. I'm stuck in a situation where I am getting bullied by my dad and my roommates. I have a low income and I want to get out of my current situation of being bullied because my dad and my roommates don't like that I'm gay. I am needing help finding a new place to live in California away from the commotion. I can pay my bills, the only thing I need help with is getting enough money to pay for the deposit for an apartment. I would really appreciate your help. Thanks, Dylan.
